Ghanaian coach Kobina Amissah took charge of first CAF inter-clubs competition by leading Liberian side Red Lions in their 1-0 first leg Confederation Cup defeat to CS Constantine at home.
The former Hasaacas coach, who joined the club late last year, saw his side go down to a Zahir Zerdab goal.
Liberian strugglers Red Lions were playing their first match of the tournament after preliminary round opponents Estrela de Cantanhez of Guinea Bissau withdrew.
â€œI have assembled a new and young team and our opponent was too strong for us but we are not giving up yet,â€ Amissah told GHANASoccernet.com
â€œIt was a nice experience for me to play in the CAF Confederation Cup. The benefits of playing clubs from different and stronger league will make me better.â€
Red Lions are also making their debut in Africa after losing last season's Liberian FA Cup.
